This little guy is a testament to all of us for facing life's challenges and overcoming them.
Meet Mercury: a 7-week-old kitten who loves to run, jump, play and wrestle. The only thing that sets him apart from any other kitten is that fact that he's missing his front two legs and most of his toes. It's believed that Mercury was the victim of a weed whacker incident, based on yard work that had been done around the neighborhood. He was taken in and nursed back to health. Despite his challenges, he is able to run and play like most any other kitten!
Way to go, Mercury!
That's right, a cat cafe (that's a cafe filled with cats) is coming to the City by the Bay later this year. Founders David Braginsky and Courtney Hatt, who have dubbed the cafe "KitTea" describe their business as "part 'gourmet tea house' and hart 'cat and human oasis.'"
The goal of KitTea is to not only provide homeless cats with a place to call home, but to also bring humans and cats together in purrfect harmony. Here's how the cafe is described to work:
Patrons will partake of all the enjoyment and therapy that cats provide, while enjoying healthy blends of exotic teas that are ecologically sourced from around the world. Our cats will enjoy a high-quality, elegant home constructed expressly for their pleasure.
Right after giving birth to her own kittens, Della, the cat, came across three tiny ducklings. She found the baby ducks only an hour or so after she gave birth, which made her instinctively protective of any small, warm and fuzzy creature. If Della had come across the ducklings outside this unique window of time, the birds' fate would have been an entirely different outcome.
